Three kinds of bias that shape your worldview — J. Marshall Shepherd

What shapes our perceptions (and misperceptions) about science? In an eye-opening talk, meteorologist J. Marshall Shepherd explains how confirmation bias, the Dunning-Kruger effect and cognitive dissonance impact what we think we know — and shares ideas for how we can replace them with something much more powerful: knowledge.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxUGA, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.
